Good for the heart!


(5 stars)

A lovely story typical of GLH, and well read. If you need a quiet, easy to follow story with a fairy tale ending, and good morals, with the Gospel thrown in for good measure ...give it a try. Thank you Librivox volunteers, one and all, who make it a blessing for those of us who just need to relax with a good story. You are a blessing.

What an incredible book. Although it is the typical story of gallant hero rescuing a beautiful, dainty lady, it has such a sweet wholesomeness about it. Grace Livingston Hill has such a way with words that I could just ‘see’ the story.

I absolutely loved this. Maybe I'm just feeling emotional, but I bawled like a baby throughout this story. Just the sweetest, cleanest story ever. It was balm to a tired heart❤

Another Wholesome bk by GLH!!
